Elderly Pioneer AVIC system

Post by Doggy »

Apologies for a blatantly non-406 question.
My motorhome came with pretty much all the latest tech, frozen in time from the early naughties
It has a Poineer AVIC-X1, (or X1R not sure), head unit with flip out 6" screen, built in satnav, internal cd + remote multichanger etc.
Also has a Parrot 3200 bluetooth adaptor and a discrete reversing camera monitor.
Strikes me that all this lot would be better combined into a single device that supports motorhome/truck navigation
I could shell out about £1200 for the latest equivalent Pioneer equivalent with camper navigation, (meant for a Fiat Ducato), (AVIC-EVO1-DT2-C-GR), but I'm thinking a better (cheaper) solution would be to use a GPS equipped android tablet and use it for navigation / audio / camera monitor / bluetooth phone connection and maybe a whole lot more. (I fancy tinkering with this).
Any clues on where to start finding out about this in detail?

I think that you'd be far better off with the tablet, since it will save you a lot of work in the guts of the motorhome's driving panel.
The thing I'd be wary of is the legal status of doing that: would it be alright? Because if I were to do that in France, I think it'd be considered as using a mobile phone while driving, which is bad news for your driver's license and wallet.

I'd have said tablet too, but my (admittedly small) experience of them is they refuse to do anything you'd actually expect them to do. Verdict: paperweight.
